Talented artist Makarycheva Tatiana of Kholui has painted this detailed box.
The artist has depicted a panoramic view of town of Suzdal in Summer.
Suzdal is one of the oldest towns in north-east Russia. It was the Capital of the Rostov-Suzdal Principality in the 11th Century. Town of Suzdal is located approximately 200 km from Moscow on the banks of the River Kamenka.
The view of the Bell-towers and Domes of Churches share a tree-lined panorama with vistas of the horizon stretching as far as the eye can see. Suzdal is a very old, legendary town with a fairy-tale charm. The white stone walls of its Kremlin and Monasteries own a majestic beauty, its Church domes and Belfries soar into the sky, and its neat wooden houses are decorated with exquisite carved patterns! Centuries have passed without marring the beauty of olden Suzdal with modern architecture. The architectural aspect of the town, which has taken shape over the course of Centuries has perpetuated in stone, the history of Suzdal, which is closely linked with the history of the old Russia and its rich culture. The remarkable heritage of Suzdal has turned this small town into an inimitable open-air museum. The town is rightly regarded as a gem of Russian national culture. Indeed, it contains about 100 monuments of secular and Church architecture. Suzdal has preserved its natural environment and the need to keep its original beauty intact has been taken into account by developers looking to prolong its wealth of cultural wonder!
